It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Appointments and Visiting.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

You could tell our mental clocks were on to the fact that we had appointments today. Both of us tossed and turned and when we finally got out of bed around 8:00 neither of us felt rested. After cereal and coffee for breakfast we did have a half hour to do our morning reading on the computers before we had to leave. 

Kathy had a follow-up appointment with her family doctor to see how her new arthritic medications are working and to get the results of her last round of blood tests. Surprisingly I never ever had a chance to finish one crossword puzzle and Kathy was ready to leave. 

We stopped at the Ford dealership to reschedule the oil change for the truck to tomorrow instead of next week because the truck will probably be in the body shop on Monday making it difficult to be in two places at once. While I was talking to the service representative I looked up to see one of my old Journeymen Bud Dean who helped me refine my trade. We spoke for a while as he waited for his vehicle to be serviced and after promising to get together in the future I had to leave. 

Back at the apartment I got cleaned up while Kathy made lunch. Now it was my turn to go see a specialist.  On the way across town we stopped at the Credit Union before ending up at the Medical Center I needed to go. Just as I was about to pay for my parking permit a young woman was about to leave and asked if an hour permit would be all I needed so I thanked her and didn’t have to pay for the parking. By the time I was finished we only had seven minutes left around and nobody to pass it off to. 

Kathy and I haven’t been out walking for a while so we stopped at the Devonshire Mall to do some walking. We even considered buying supper there but then Kathy thought of going back to LaSalle near where we used to live and have fish and chips at Sir Cedric’s. It had been a long time since we’d been there but we weren’t disappointed because it was delicious as ever. While enjoying our supper we also met Jim Turner who I used to work with in my old plant but for some reason he hasn’t retired yet after putting in over forty years in the industry. 

From supper we drove to Amherstburg to visit with Kevin and Melissa, plus Kevin was allowing me to empty the tool cabinets in our truck bed in his garage until it returns from the body shop. I even removed the fifth wheel hitch so the body shop would be able to access the bolts easier for changing the damaged Toneau Cover rails. Kevin is slowly recovering from his Gallbladder Surgery but still tried to help to move items that weren’t too heavy. I made sure to wear my support belt so I wouldn’t mess myself up either. For it being cooler temperatures than last week I was totally soaking wet by the time I finished that chore. The visit went as always with lots of information flowing both ways and lots of laughs thrown in for good measure. 

Tomorrow is busy again but we’ll try to make time for some adventures. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
